Fraternity Honors AAMU Student Volunteerism

Bookmark and Share

​The nearly 260 Alabama A&M University students who participated in the fundraising activities in support of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital received awards of appreciation from a local fraternity recently.


Some 259 students coordinated by AAMU Service and Learning Coordinator Monica N. Clarke took part in the St. Jude Walk and related activities at Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church in Harvest, Ala.


Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc., visited the campus in mid October to present awards to Alabama A&M University President Andrew Hugine, Jr., coordinators and representatives from participating student organizations.  The Fraternity made presentations to the Student Government Association, the Honors Program, Service Learning, the University Echoes and to AAMU.


Since 2012, the fraternity has been supporting and raising funds for St. Jude, primarily through the annual St. Jude Run/Walk to End Childhood Cancer. Iota Teams are composed of members of the IOTA Family (i.e., Brothers, Sweethearts, families and supporters) and run/walk in unity in major cities across the nation on a single day, while raising funds throughout the year for St. Jude.
